i cant read all that...sorry if you feel insulted but that was a LUDICROUS thing to say....there is no comparison. and i am not talking about some bullshit idealized version of pigpen.

i really like the band with pig. i think it was a GREAT period for the band. but pigpen was A CHARACTER. he was one of THE characters EVER, the dead's own NEAL CASSADY, and just absolutley KEY in forming the COMPLETE identity of the band that would carry it through 30 years.

but saying jackie greene sounds just like pig is dumb. you're comparing apples and oranges OK? it's just silly.

(PLEASE,..... we all have said dumb things around here, myself very definitely included. BUT COME ON! this little dude sounds like a 12 year old pimply faced virgin, with possibly, NO pubic hair... freind, he don't sound a m'f'in thing like ron "pigpen" mckernnan....spare me.... please)
